UPDATE: If you've been eyeing up Alexander Wang's thick-soled adidas AW Skate but are still on the fence, we've got some on-foot pics to nudge you in the right direction. You'll be able to grab a pair from adidas originals on April 1.
The Alexander Wang x adidas AW Skate is a chunky shoe that certainly hasn’t been designed with board-feel in mind. Wang has taken design cues from the simplicity of the minimal skate aesthetic, then added some heavy tread and a tri-tone midsole for a more contemporary vibe. Altogether it creates an oddly appealing silhouette, looking like a cross between a creeper and a tennis shoe.
There are still a few sizes of the Alexander Wang x adidas AW Skate ‘Sand’ left over at Concepts, go for it.
